Hobson’s Choice – Cornelia Parker at Frith Street Gallery

For more than twenty years British artist Cornelia Parker has been building a rich and intellectually complex body of work. As an artist, Parker spends much of her time running errands and managing various aspects of production connected to her practice. Here she notices the marks, scraps of decay and detritus of the city, which to her appear as moments of poetry, and are usually overlooked by others. Her new exhibition at Frith Street Gallery deifies some of these moments; cracks, stains, repairs and discarded objects are made extraordinary, physical and precious.
